Lakewood BlueClaws Charities Christmas Cruise-Thru

As of November 18, 2022 there are no details about this event for 2022.
BlueClaws Charities Christmas Cruise-Thru on December 12th
Drive-through event to include appearance by Santa; toy drive to benefit Salvation Army of Ocean County
Santa Claws is coming to the Jersey Shore! BlueClaws Charities will host their first Christmas Cruise-Thru in the parking lot of FirstEnergy Park on Saturday, December 12th from 10 am until 12 pm. The event, which takes place exclusively in vehicles, serves as a toy drive benefiting the Salvation Army of Ocean County.
This event replaces the annual _Breakfast With Buster Holiday Food & Toy Drive_, which could not be held this year in its traditional form due to COVID-19 regulations.
Beginning at 10 am, cars will pull into the lot at FirstEnergy Park and stop at four different stations.
- Item Collection – we will be collecting unwrapped toys and non-perishable food to benefit the Salvation Army of Ocean County.
- Letters to Santa – children are encouraged to bring letters for Santa. We’ll collect them and send them off to the North Pole!
- Picture with Buster and Santa – Santa and Buster will take a picture in front of each car, which we’ll then email to everyone after the event.
- Hot Chocolate – the BlueClaws will deliver hot chocolate to each car as a thank you for their participation.
